I had the H and R springs before, but I want springs that will retain the warranty on the car.

I looked into this and BMW will only warranty the performance suspension if you fit the whole kit with dampers and bumpstops too - which makes sense.

Fitting just springs is a bad idea IMO with the already soft standard damping it will make it worse.

Kit is about 450 and springs separate about 300

As the BMWP springs are all different and about 3 or 4 types per models depending on options fitted (weight), its difficult for anyone to do a like for like comparison as the damper kits are fixed for all models which means they cannot be matched sets.

Were the H&R springs black? If so no one would notice anyway IMO.
